"In recent years, my art has been focused on the promotion of peace and human understanding. I believe strongly this intention has been driven by my cultural background. I was born in Hong Kong at the end of World War II, when peace was finally declared, and so I was given the name Wai-Ping. In Chinese Ping means 'peace' and Wai, 'gift'. I am continually guided and inspired on my artistic path by that same deep yearning for greater peace and understanding in the world--something that was so much a part of my parents' experience." --Amy Loewan, excerpt from Artist Statement
